Post #: 184
Fanswell (Fanswell.fm) is a funded and freshly-launched Internet startup for music artists and fans. We are in a hot, leading-edge space within today’s music industry. Our core focus is to help artists play more live shows and interact more closely with their fans.

We are seeking a User Experience superstar to lead efforts to take us from beta to a world-class service. We want a collaborative, inspired individual with a strong point-of-view and visual style. With your help, we plan to knock our service out of the park.

Among our goals and your skills:

  • Make a new concept in live music clear, fun and stress-free for artists and fans
  • Offer high level of customization for all types of artists, while also keeping things simple
  • Optimize social network interaction

Your responsibilities include:

  • Keep the interface beautiful and easy to use. Direct the visual appearance of all new features and enhancements on our software application
  • Initiate, suggest, and spearhead major UI re-factorings for a more intuitive user-experience
  • Design elegant solutions to complex workflows Design things that people will talk about
  • Act as the user-advocate during the development process, subjecting early-stage designs to usability testing or expert review, and offering implementation suggestions from a user-centered perspective
  • Act as “go to” with in-depth knowledge of user interface best practices and standards. Use research-related services, theories and methods to support your recommendations
  • Take the initiative in providing input and feedback in both departmental discussions and on issues relating to other departments
  • Develop wireframes, behavioral specifications and personas

Candidate must be highly organized, thrive in a startup atmosphere, offer inspired ideas and solutions, and be highly-motivated. If you're a music nut, that would be cool, but definitely not required.

We want to fill this full-time position immediately. Fanswell offices are in downtown LA.

If you're interested, please send a few details about your skills and fit for the job, and I'll follow up with you ASAP. Thank you!
